Hunter did fine, but what struck me is that most of the speech could have just as easily been given by Giuliani, with tough talk on defense:
“We are going to leave Iraq in victory” and “As President, I will never allow Iran to get a nuclear weapon.”
Interestingly, when he said of Israel “that postage stamp on the map” has always stood by America, and that America will always stand by Israel, it prompted a standing ovation, with some in the audience waving Israeli flags. This reinforced something I’ve felt for a while, that the Israel issue is one that Giuliani can use as part of his outreach to evangelicals. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear him recount his ejection of Arafat story tomorrow.
Hunter also talked about getting tough on China on trade as part of efforts to rebuild American manufacturing.
He touched on abortion toward the end, and said unlike other politicians, he isn’t vague about what kind of judges he would appoint. He said he would show any judicial candidate a sonogram and if they “can’t tell it’s a human life, I will not appoint that candidate to the federal bench.”
